Perfect, highly recommend Jan our tour guide.

We had the most fantastic time on Jan’s tour around Palantine Hill, the Forum and the Colosseum. Jan was so informative, interesting, knowledgable and considerate. It was an extremely hot day and he ensured that we moved from shady spot to shady spot all without compromising the tour. He offered alternatives for those who couldn’t manage the walk/heat and ensured that everyone was ok throughout. His knowledge of Roman history and culture was incredible and he happily answered questions, welcoming discussion throughout the tour. We learnt so much and could clearly see Jan’s genuine passion and enthusiasm for his work. There were multiple stops for filling up water throughout the tour and opportunity for toilet breaks if need be. And no queuing time at all! The tour gave a fantastic over view of Ancient Rome but also provided amazing details of the sights we were seeing and indications of what life in Ancient Rome really would’ve been like. Highly recommend Jan and this tour, 10/10!

Knowledge Guide but Tedious Check-in Process!

Our guide was super knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information and historical facts on the Colosseum, Hill, and Roman Forum. The tour was very enjoyable despite the heat. You can tell the guide did a lot of preparation before taking us on tour. He had pictures printed and everything for each significant site to give us a real view of what it looked like in Ancient Roman times. However, the check-in process was hectic, we arrived at our 8:30am tour 2 minutes before the scheduled time only to find our group had left. We were rescheduled to the 9:30am tour, which we would’ve be happy with except the lady that was helping us had a nasty attitude when I asked why our original group left already before the scheduled start time. She practically told us to take it or leave it and walked away. Not a pleasant customer experience.

Both guides were exceptional and had a vast wealth of knowledge.

Our female tour guide whose name I cannot remember had great pace when taking us around the colluseum. We have been on a tour of the colluseum before but we found that we leaned so much more this time around. The information she shared with us was really interesting and was all new information to us. Santos was our guide around Palatine hill and the forum. He was incredibly charismatic and personable. He delved into the mythology and the history of the two areas like a natural born story teller. The background information that he provided made a massive difference to our understanding on tours we went on today. 10\10 would recommend!!

These 3 places should be on your bucked list

Colosseum, Forum Romanum og Palatinerhøjen are unbeleaveble exebitions and i would reccomend every one to try it. This guided trip was in general good and especallaly good becasue it lets you skip the que for all three places. In the app it said that the event was hosted by an unknown company which made it quite difficult to know which guided company we were looking for, but we eventaully found it by asking aroud.

loved it but the experience could be updated and more inter-active

Really loved all 3 experiences, (forum, paletine hill and colosseum) and the value was good for the money. We paid for a tour guide on top and learned alot from them, many museums these days bring the site to 'life' by having images of how it might have been etc (there were some at Paletine Hill) and these would have been good elsewhere (to help you see what life was like when it wasn't ruins)
